So learn to enjoy each day with a goal to do the best you can by making healthy food choices and increasing your activity during the day. Lose the guilt when you can’t find time for your workout or if you slip up and cave in to that piece of pizza or doughnut.

You Control Your Health

93MuZQNViw9llqd1FvsPcNW-_6sNmSIm6ZrqUn0hWnh8UctGbQjQMK8anXcC85sieHAmcveMoAAxn-B4cY8QOR2AMkrcTu86k7wXtWrKxwg_bVS4BYo (548√ó446)

Although hereditary factors can play a part in some diseases, you have a lot more control of your health than you might think. Your body is an amazing machine designed to heal, but with continued abuse of unhealthy food choices and inactivity, you can end up with permanent damage. There comes a point where your body gives in and stops fighting. You are left with an increased chance of developing diseases such as: diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, or auto-immune disorders.

Once this occurs you have damage that can’t be reversed. Diabetes can lead to blindness, loss of limbs, and even coma. Heart disease and hypertension can cause heart attacks, stroke, and leave you dependent on others for your care.

You have the ability and the choice everyday to make good decisions regarding your food choices and activity level. ¬†Don’t wake up one day and regret the opportunities you had to take care of yourself and live a better quality of life.

Don’t wait another day to start making small changes to your diet and lifestyle. You will be amazed at how much better you feel mentally and physically as you begin to decrease consumption of junk foods and develop a consistent exercise program.

LAU HANLY reports in the article:

Short-Term and Long-Term Effects of a Healthy Diet

Over the course of your life, the benefits of a consistently healthy diet really add up. You are less likely to develop cancer, arthritis, memory loss, dementia and macular degeneration. You’re at a reduced risk of getting heart attacks, blood clots, of sustaining falls and fractures, of getting diabetes, and of having nutritional deficiencies that otherwise become more difficult to treat as you age. You’re also likely to live longer, and to be happier and more active than people who have eaten a less healthy diet.

How’s Your Self Control?

12963871_10209549624361232_5825799707035679994_n

Self control can be a big challenge but it’s like a muscle that responds to how often we use it. The more you use it the stronger it gets. Learn to pause and think about your food choices. How are you going to feel 5 minutes after eating those fries or junk food? It affects you physically by making you sluggish and in the long run leads to disease. Mentally it makes you feel bad about yourself and your ability to stick to your goals. Is your health and well-being worth that few minutes it takes to scarf down that pizza or doughnut? Learn to visualize success and imagine how you are going to feel after making a healthy choice. You can learn to enjoy healthy food by experimenting with new recipes and really getting involved in your food preparation. Your body will respond with more sustained energy and you will build self-control. Remember pause and reflect- food can either improve your health or cause disease. It’s your choice.¬†ūüėä

Take Responsibility For Your Life

The following quote from Eckhart Tolle

“Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences”19420717_1379921288763078_123818451850414898_n
